represent the christian religion, but actually the supreme court's decision was saying this one in particular really reflects the crosses of u.s. fallen soldiers you see in cemeteries across europe where soldiers fought and lost their lives in the name of freedom and at the end of the day it's not necessarily about religion, but something broader stiblism, harris. >> harris: how about that coming together on veterans day, dominique di-natale, thank you very much. continuing coverage of our fox top story tonight. a statement coming in now, associated press is reporting jill kelly remember the top of the newscast, told you there are now two women involved in different ways, in this scandal that surrounds general david petraeus, who suddenly left the cia, as the head of it on friday. and jill kelly, a family friend of the petraeus family who received threatening e-mails from the computer of a former girlfriend, paula broadwell with whom petraeus was having an affair. jill kelly issued a statement to the associated press acknowledging her friendship with the former cia director and
a lot about religion but one milestone was overlooked. hawaii made tulsi gabbard the first hindu congresswoman. representative elect gabbard joins us now from new york. good morning. >> thank you for having me this morning. >> we're excited to have you here. how does it feel? >> thank you so much. i'm excited and ready to get to work. >> you have a lot of work to do, too, let me tell you. >> yes. >> but let's talk about your religion because, you know, a lot of us think that it's pretty cool to have a hindu in congress for the first time. do you feel like you're something unusual? >> you know, i'm actually very proud and i'm proud especially of the people of hawaii and to come from a place as special as hawaii because not only did they make the choice to elect me, the first hindu member of congress, but also elected the first buddhist member of the u.s. senate. and in hawaii, hindu and buddhists are a majority in faith within the community but it shows the respect, diversity, and love and aloha that people have in hawaii to allow for something like this to happen. >> normally we
with our long history and pluralization of american religions. >> so tell us a bit about that history. why is it okay to joke about jesus but not other religious figures? >> the sacred is much more in contest here in part because of our legacy of religious freedom, but in part because we've had a long history of conflict over sacred imagery and words, often violent conflict. and in more recent years because of the rise of secularism, because of the rise of the culture of mockery in part, as well. it's just become more acceptable. >> is it because more and more of us are agnostic? i mean, why is it? is it -- do we still believe in jesus yet we joke about him? is it the other way around? >> well, it's funny if you read the comments on our cnn belief blog, you'll see that people are engaging in arguments with each other saying our argument has but humor is the way we deal with these kinds of conflicts. and as we say in the piece, in part, it's our way we don't kill each other. >> well, interestingly, i was talking to one of the employees here at cnn, kathy, and she said her minister, she belo
in your religion, which i do, but to go transfer some biblical scripture into science and try to use it for a different purpose than it was meant. it's meant for spiritual and moral leadership, not meant for scientific inquiry. for them to keep doing this like he does and claiming he's going to lead the country into the 21st -- through the 21st century? i think that's kind of not smart or dopey thinking. what do you think? how can you claim to be a reformist and talk about creationism? >> i'm not sure that bobby jindal is talking about creationism very much in the statements he made to politico. >> he hasn't stopped. >> he hasn't stopped yet. again, this is very early days. i'm not trying to make excuses for him. i think that there's a -- in any way. i'm pro-science, i think we need to be credible reform party, you should embrace climate change and propose solutions to them. there's no question about that. but, you know, i think there is going to be -- this is where some of the cleavages will come among various strains of reformism. howard pointed to one, the question of immigration.
a weird thing as a muslim to have my religion used as a way to delegitimatize the president. you know? yeah, this play sort of deals with a lot of that stuff. it's a very brave, provocative piece of theater, and i was very excited about it. >> why did you take on this role, because it is so different than what you normally do? >> well, i'm an actor, so i have been doing dramatic stuff and comedic stuff my whole career. ever since i played that pixie in the school play. thank god people know about that now. >> roll the tape. where is that? >> there probably is somewhere. i've been doing both my whole career, so, know, the last six or seven years i have been on "the daily show" and people know me as that guy, that comedian guy, but for me to go do dramatic stuff is not that much of a stretch. i have been doing it a lot. >> when you saw how the election turned out and we have heard from mitt romney very recently saying that, look, he thought the reason obama won says was because he thought there were gifts he was giving out to african-americans, to latino, to young people. >> cars and th
see political risk to things like fracking coming down? do politicians get religion here? >> i think they already have. certainly if politicians haven't, voters have. we need to look at the results in new york state in some of the local state elections where anti-fracking candidates were defeated very resoundingly. in areas where natural gas and associated gas liquids and even oil can be extracted through the fracking process, more and more you're going to see residents, homeowners, property owners speaking their mind saying this is a resource we want to see exploited not only for ourselves but for the nation and for our own energy independence. >> if this report comes true, does that mean that nat gas prices are destined to remain historically low? >> yes and no. natural gas until we get a sufficient pipeline infrastructure built out to handle some of the swings that we see in certain pockets and i think particularly in the northeast, you know, you're still going to see temporary price spikes. your thesis is correct and your question is correct in that longer term we have sufficient
